Peter Carl Fabergé (Russian, 1846–1920) was the world’s greatest master of guilloché
enameling, a time-intensive technique, in which polychrome enamel is layered over circular, straight, or wave patterns engraved on metal. The enamel is translucent, allowing light to penetrate and reflect off the metal, which shimmers as light catches it from different angles. Combining exquisite guilloché
enameling with precious metals and stones, Fabergé brought it to the very heights of luxury. Our handsome pen is based on a gold picture frame with guilloché
enamel in the Museum’s collection, created by Fabergé’s studios before 1899.
